On his 7th release, aptly titled ‘Seventh Hour’, Jones teamed up with multi-Juno award winning artist/producer, Steve Dawson, to mix the album.
Previous releases have featured legendary guests Hubert Sumlin (Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters) and David “Fathead” Newman (Ray Charles); heavy-hitters Kim Wilson (Fabulous Thunderbirds) and Charlie Musselwhite; two of the most innovative guitarists of our time, Little Charlie Baty and Junior Watson; and Canadian billboard favorite, Colin James. Jones has cut records from Hollywood to Sun Studios in Memphis.
Guitar World Magazine featured a CD called ‘Guitar Masters Vol. 2’ that put Jones alongside guitar stars B.B. King, Jimmy Page, and Carlos Santana among others, which led him to an endorsement deal with Gibson guitars.
While keeping one foot firmly planted in the roots he came from, this Maple Blues Award winner believes that appealing to a younger audience is the most important way to ensure the evolution of blues-based music.
Musicians that tour with Jones; Jansen Richard (drums) and the heavy grooves of Laura Greenberg (bass) always add a powerful energy to the stage.
Charlie Musselwhite says “JW has done it again. Another fine CD of great tunes, guitar playing and arrangements. He sings his blues with authority.”
His last few CDs have hit #1 on B.B. King’s Bluesville on Sirius-XM Radio in the U.S.A., and Jones continues to win over audiences across the globe with his high-energy live performances.
